Minister

Can anyone educate me on how much is appropriate to pay the minister?  We don't go to church, but we would like to use my FI's late grandmother's pastor.  We're just not sure what is acceptable.  HELP!

    can you ask him if he has a fee?  If not, maybe ask an office of the church he is a pastor at if they know.

    I paid my Rev $350 and I also gave him a donation after the ceremony.

    I paid mine $300 plus him and his wife joined us at the reception for dinner.  He is a friend.  He said he wouldn't charge us his normal $300 but we wanted to compensate him for his time.

    Thank you!  That's about what I was expecting, but wasn't sure.  Planning a wedding is a little overwhelming sometimes when you aren't sure of things!  Thanks for your help.
